The freight cost of airfreight shipments is calculated on the “Chargeable Weight”, whichever is the greater of two measures – Gross Weight or Volumetric Weight (also called Volume or Dimensional).
Typically, large, low-weight items take up more space than a small, heavy item. For example, 500 kgs of cotton would need far more cargo space than 500 kgs of rocks.
To determine the Volumetric Weight of an air shipment, multiply the package dimensions (LxWxH) by number of packages to obtain the total cubic centimeters, then divide by 6000. Compare your result with the Gross Weight. The higher number is used to calculate your freight rate.
